Five-a-Side Soccer Girls Through to Dublin Finals!

Five-a-Side Soccer Girls Through to Dublin Finals!

Congratulations girls!

In only our second year entering the Spar 5-a-side championships, SVDP have made it through to the last four teams in Co Dublin! The eight girls on the squad played out of their skins yesterday at Irishtown Sports Complex, going undefeated in all seven games. Remarkably, goalkeeper Eden Tyler did not concede one goal throughout yesterday’s entire tournament!

The final of yesterday’s tournament was against a very strong St Fiachra’s side. Both teams were very evenly matched in a very tense game which finished in a 0-0 draw. We then went to an agonising penalty shoot-out. Three girls from each team were nominated for penalties, after which things were still all square and so we headed into the dreaded ‘sudden death’ penalty shootout! After eight penalties the teams were still level! Penalty number nine was scored by a very composed Ava Lambe. Eden Tyler then underlined her ‘Hero of the Day’ status when she pulled off a wonderful save to send SVDP through to the Dublin finals which will be played on Thursday 27th April in Abbotstown. Congratulations to the girls and commiserations to St Fiachra’s who could well have progressed on any other day.
